ETC Europe, The Lir Academy and PSI Production are proud to present a series of one-day ETC EOS family training sessions across Ireland at various levels.

ETC's Eos family of consoles provides power that is elegant, approachable, and scalable. These hands-on training events will give you the opportunity to explore first-hand the features and functions of these powerful control systems.

The sessions will include a hardware overview of Nomad, Element, Element 2, Ion, Ion Xe, Gio @5, Gio, Eos Ti and Apex consoles. During the courses you will be introduced to the basics and nuances of this high-level control system and you will leave with more confidence in using your ETC console.

We have recently restructured the Eos training model. We now provide: Eos Essentials (previously Level 1 and Level 2 combined), EOS Expanded (previously Level 3) and EOS Advanced (previously Level 4). An EOS Expert course if offered on request subject to demand.

Courses options are as follows. Each course is a one-day course.
Eos Essentials
Eos Expanded
